how much do you charge
start up costs
electric or petrol
I've got a Honda industrial thing, paid £60 off my mate I have a smaller one too but it won't draw water, I price them on about £50 per hour
That was cheap for the pressure washer
Yeh he bought it for £800 I think, it's been used once in 2 years, he said how much you got on you is said £60 he said that will do, but if I ever need It I can borrow it good enougth deal for me lol
I brought this one on ebay second hand last week for £80 http://okpressurewashers.com/Pressure-Washer-Kranzle-K-125-t503/ i am going to use for getting some moss of a roof in a couple of weeks i have turned it on lol it works . Is yours much more powerful ? .
30 pound per hour, well thats what I aim for. I don't like to tell customers this when pricing a job. I just puts them off.
I spent 650 altogther, I got a 3600 psi, 15litres a min flow rate. With a turbo nozzle. I also got 30 meters of quality hose with it.
Petrol, The bigger machines use petrol. If your going for an electric one I would buy a generator too or your customers will need to be in when you do the job. Its not convenient sometimes. I get my water from a near by tap, if there isnt one there when I go to price the job. I have a tank I can fill with water
That will do the job fine mark.
Cheers , After i got it i thought have i done the right thing should i have brought a better one not used it yet so i dont know if it would be good enough to start advertising for patio cleans etc
Honestly pal doing driveways and pations with it your making things hard for yourself, petrol washer of 3000 is ideal ( mines only 2700 i think ) speed and gets all the ground in dirt. I'd prefer cleaning someone's roof with a less powerful washer tho
I decided to go out and give it a wash after I read this topic, also tidyed out all my van
